    • Row 4 – Color D, same as row 2.
    • Repeat the pattern for however long you desire, changing colors for rows as follows: A, B, C, D, A, B…


  • Fasten off and weave in ends.


  1. Cut 10 pieces of yarn 12 inches (30cm) long each.
  2. Fold them in half, creating a loop at the fold.
  3. Use your crochet hook to pull the loop halfway through the edge of the scarf.
  4. Open the loop, pull the yarn ends through, and tighten to secure the fringe.
  5. Insert each fringe into the treble crochet row and trim evenly.


For best results, block your scarf to shape it, smooth uneven stitches, and define the edges.


This pattern results in a beautifully crafted wave scarf inspired by ocean waves, using a simple two-row repeat that creates a stunning visual effect.
